ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's insights on the January 8, 2011 shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords by Jared Lee Loughner. He says that the shooting can be attributed to various cultural factors in Arizona including the sale of the state capitol and other state properties by the Arizona Department of Administration, the Safeway Shopping Center design, and rapid population growth. However, he is still optimistic on the leadership in the state.
